Make it a Day On... Not a Day Off!
Monday, January 20th
Make this holiday a day ON, where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to improve lives, bridge social barriers, and move our nation closer to the "Beloved Community" that Dr. King envisioned.
Theme: "Unfulfilled Dreams"
2014 MLK Day of Service Committee Mission
“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity”
Our mission as the MLK Day of Service Committee is to make certain that each volunteer is educated about the adversity faced by those we serve, along with the truth that together we can create change. It is our goal to ensure that the volunteers and the people we serve on Martin Luther King Day grow as one and learn from each other through the formation of friendships and understanding.
2014 MLK Day of Service Committee Legacy
"We always have today to work towards a better tomorrow"
We want our volunteers to finish their day of service with a sense of awareness that transforms the way they see the world. Both the volunteers and the people we serve should be left with new relationships, influential memories, and emotions that empower them to continue working together towards a brighter tomorrow.
